  • Mrs Hathaway

    “A comfortable and warm cottage with good road connections to the surrounding areas.”


    The ground floor of the cottage is exceptionally spacious and light. The kitchen is equipped to a very high standard. The double beds are very comfortable. We slept much better than usual. The owners live across the courtyard and have been quick and attentive to sort out a small problem we experienced in the cottage. We had a great time. The only drawback would be that the bedrooms windows are considerably low down and small, leaving the rooms fairly dark, but as we only used these rooms to sleep, it did not matter.

The property

A fabulous detached, brick-built cottage, quietly nestling on the outskirts of the delightful Cheshire village of Tarvin, just 6 miles from the Roman city of Chester.

Lovingly renovated and steeped in history, this delightful cottage is located in the grounds of the owners' home and offers an ideal base for families.

Spacious and stylish throughout, this cottage has a well-equipped kitchen with breakfast bar, a social dining room and a bright and airy, welcoming sitting room which enjoys natural light from three sides.

The sleeping arrangements at this lovely cottage consist of three comfy bedrooms, with two double rooms and a bunk bedroom ideal for kids and teenagers, and completing the accommodation are two bathrooms, a first floor bathroom with bath and shower over and a ground floor bathroom with bath and separate shower cubicle.

Outside, there is a sheltered patio area with table and chairs to allow you to enjoy the Cheshire country air with a refreshing drink and a good book, or dine alfresco using the barbecue.

Set on a quiet side road, all the village amenities are practically on your doorstep, with a choice of excellent pubs and restaurants, along with shops, cafes and takeaways.

If you wish to travel further afield, the bus from Crewe to Chester stops at the end of the lane allowing you to access the shopping centre at Crewe or explore the wonderful city of Chester with its many shops and racecourse - car free!

There are many superb walks in the vicinity, including the Sandstone Trail and Delamere Forest, which is also renowned as a mountain biker's paradise.

A fantastic cottage to be enjoyed all year round.

About the location


Chester 6 miles.

Tarvin is a bustling village just 6 miles from historic Chester. Tarvin boasts several shops, good pubs serving food and a wine bar bistro. Nearby Delamere Forest and Manley Mere offer activities for those who enjoy more of the outdoor life. Chester has been described as 'the jewel of the North-West of England' - Perhaps the most fascinating aspect of the city is that within a small area there is evidence of every period of history; from the old walls and amphitheatre of Roman times, medieval churches, Elizabethan timber-framed town houses and Georgian terraces, to Victorian restorations and 21st century architecture. The City has much to offer the tourist, including excellent shopping, the famous 'Rows', and lovely walks within the city boundaries - around the old Roman Walls, along The Groves beside the River Dee or through the picturesque Grosvenor Park. Further afield, the stunning Welsh mountains and coastline, and the market towns and villages of Cheshire, are all within easy touring distance, whilst the nearby Wirral Peninsula has many splendid courses to tempt the golfing enthusiast.
